Socorro's Street Tacos

I stopped by Socorro’s Street Tacos this past weekend with my Oklahoman gal pal and Kimmy (joined by her special friend). There is really nothing fancy about Socorro’s, the new taqueria at 19 East Bayaud Street, and that is part of its charm. It is an intimate space with a few bar stools and a hand written menu board describing a great selection of tortas, burritos, and three-bite street tacos.

At $1.99 each and with names like “Roadrunner,” “Eldorado,” “Sister Bernadette,” and “Rio Grande,” we had to try many. One of our favorite fillings was the moist fish that was full of flavor. Wrapped in two corn tortillas it was topped with a special sauce that I could have had more of. I rounded out my mini meal by sipping on a tall glass of horchata, the traditional Mexican beverage made of rice. Delicious!

Keep in mind a few things. The space is small. It can get tight. There is a staff of two or three at any time. Tacos may take longer to prepare than you may expect, but the staff is warm, friendly, and on our visit, very attentive. Honestly, I have not stopped thinking about these tacos and I am seriously looking forward to stopping by again soon to try a torta.
